Buddhist Legends. An English translation of this complete translation of the Dhammapada Commentary, which relates many events from the life of the Buddha and his disciples (with an embedded reading of part of the text). at the top of the story, except when the story is so short it hardly makes a difference. While writing his commentary on Dhammapada, Buddhaghosa (a Buddhist scholar from 5th century CE) asserted that the Pali text before him was consolidated in the First Council itself held after Parinirvana of Buddha. His commentary known as Atthakatha (Sanskrit: Arthakatha) was written in Anuradhapura, Sri : Dhruba RC.

The Dhammapada is a collection of sayings of the Buddha in verse form and one of the most widely read and best known Buddhist scriptures. The original version of the Dhammapada is in the Khuddaka Nikaya, a division of the Pali Canon of Theravada Buddhism. The Buddhist scholar and commentator Buddhaghosa explains that each saying recorded in the collection was made on a different occasion . I read somewhere that there was a traditional commentary for the Dhammapada that gave the stories that inspired the Buddha to write the various verses of the text. Does anyone know what that commentary is and is it available on the internet perhaps on something like accesstoinsight or maybe as a printed book?
